Happy Thanksgiving Day, Canada!

Woke up to a relatively chilly day here in the Ottawa valley (around 11oC, about 51oF), actually weather that’s about normal for this time of year.

I want to wish all my Canadian friends a very good day, and one that is filled with all sorts of reasons for being thankful.

To honour this day, I thought I would just share a bit of Canadian music from Nova Scotia musician Melanie Doane…

To all my Canadian friends and peeps, here’s wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving. 🙂

Important Subject if You’re Going to GenCon August 10, 2017

I’ve been giving some thought to all things GenCon Indy at the moment, given the convention is just about a week away, and the fact that I’m going to the convention. Thought that I would pass along a simple piece of advice: Remember the 5/3, 2, 1 Rule of GenCon. This means that in every 24 hours, get at least 5 (or 3) hours of sleep a night, 2 meals per day (at least one of them should be hot), and take 1 shower per day. And these are minimums, folks, bare minimums (at least for some people).

Following this basic guideline will keep you alive through the convention, maximise your time for gaming, and allow for the comfort of those with whom you are gaming. Please, please, please take a shower and use deodorant, folks. Oh, and no matter what you think, cologne/perfume cannot and does not make up for the lack of showering.

And here, to put the whole showering thing into perspective, is Savage Gypsy:

Some Men At Work Goodness, Times Three August 3, 2017

One of my favourite music tracks from Men At Work is the song “Land Down Under”.

Thought I’d share three of my favourite videos of the song. The first is the original song by Men At Work.

The flute work is just amazing on the song.

Here’s another version with an…alternate version to the flute, with the lovely Cecilia Noel.

Different, to be sure.

Finally, here’s my favourite version live with an older Colin Hay and a marvellous flautist, Gina Luciani. Not as perfect as the original band’s flautist, Greg Ham, but damn near close.

Any way you look at it, great, fun song! 🙂

It’s Monday morning.

Start of another work week, right after the switch over to Daylight Savings Time. So I thought I’d offer something pleasant for the morning. This is Delta Goodrem performing one of her huge hits, “In This Life”. (Back in 2007.)

Haven’t heard of this artist until yesterday, but there’s something about Tove Lo‘s music. Note this video is NSFW due to some of the lyrics and the last part of the video. So be warned. And I’ve been earwormed. 🙂

I woke up this morning feeling out of sorts, and think that I may have a cold or a flu of some sort. Anyway, I thought I’d start the day off on a good note. (In more than one way.)

I’m not sure why, but I have a feeling that it’s going to be one of those days.

So, in that spirit, I present this video today.

This needs to be posted today, at this moment.

Seems…fitting.
